While waiting for pupils, I began to play an exercise first put to me by my flute teacher, David Cubbin, 'On playing the open note c sharp, listen to it's tone colour and test it strength, then moving to the d, observe the closing of the colour, repeat, try to even the difference between the colour of both notes.' The room in which I was playing was quite resonant and playing more rapidly surrounding with other notes high and low, see Programme Notes here.
